Nowadays, the bicycle is seen as a sustainable and healthy substitute for the car in urban environments. The Netherlands is the leading country in terms of bicycle use, especially in urban environments. Yet route choice models featuring inner-city travel that include cyclists are lacking. This paper estimates a cyclists’ route choice model for...

Automated vehicles and driving assistance systems such as Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) are expected to reduce traffic congestion, accidents and levels of emissions. Field Operational Tests have found that drivers may prefer to deactivate ACC in dense traffic flow conditions and before changing lanes. Despite the potential effects of these...

Freeways form an important part of the road network. Drivers’ behavior can be split in longitudinal (acceleration and deceleration) and lateral behavior (lane changing). The combination of these two behaviors on freeways play a key role in traffic operations. This paper tries to describe the driving behavior, emphasizing the relation between the...

Nederlandse wegontwerpers en veiligheidsexperts zoeken naar meer kwantitatieve methodes om de veiligheid van een (voorgenomen) weefvak te bepalen dan de traditionele methodes die gebruik maken van expert judgement en ongevalsregistraties. Een alternatieve methode is om de veiligheid te bepalen met behulp van VISSIM micro-simulatiemodellen in...

The specification of the choice set for travel behaviour analysis is a non-trivial task, as its size and composition are known to influence the results of model estimation and prediction. Most studies specify the choice set using choice set generation algorithms. These methods can introduce two severe errors to the specified choice set: false...

Sags are bottlenecks in freeway networks. According to previous research, the main cause is that most drivers do not accelerate enough at sags. Consequently, they keep longer headways than expected given their speed, which leads to congestion in high demand conditions. Nowadays, there is growing interest in the development of traffic control...

One of the fundamental properties of pedestrian simulation models is their capability to predict the future movement dynamics of pedestrians depending on the current state of the pedestrian traffic flow, more specically the walking behaviour of neighbouring pedestrians. This paper investigates the influence of the interaction characteristics on...

Nowadays, many large scale events are organised in urban areas that are not designed to accomodate these large visitor flows, as not only the sheer number of people is larger than anticipated, but also their behaviour is different. For a timely deployment of crowd management measures, continuous information on the real-time traffic state on the...

The vision of intelligent vehicles traveling in road networks has prompted numerous concepts to control future traffic flow, one of which is the in-vehicle actuation of traffic control commands. The key of this concept is using intelligent vehicles as actuators for traffic control systems. Under this concept, we design and test a control...

Capacity drop indicates that the queue discharge rate is lower than the road capacity. Due to the capacity drop, traffic delays increase once queues form. Researchers find that queue discharge rates vary in different traffic conditions. Empirical data shows that the queue discharge rate increases as the speed in congestion increases....

This paper deals with the derivation of analytical formulae to estimate the effective capacity at freeway merges in a multilane context. It extends two previous papers that are based on the same modeling framework but that are restricted to a single lane on the freeway (or to the analysis of the right lane only). The analytical expression for...

This paper proposes an extension of the discrete Lighthill–Whitham–Richards model of the cell transmission model type to reproduce capacity drop and the propagation of jam waves. Recent studies have tried to incorporate the capacity drop into discrete first-order traffic flow models for traffic optimization purposes. It was found that the inflow...

Weaving is defined as the crossing of two streams travelling in the same direction along a significant section of the road without the assistance of traffic control devices. Merging and diverging vehicles need to make one or more lane-changes in a limited space and time, determined by the weaving section length. This situation creates intensive...

Turbulence in traffic is a commonly known phenomenon, but the exact characteristics of this phenomenon are not yet clear. It reflects individual changes in speed, headways, and lanes in the traffic stream. The currently used freeway design guidelines prescribe different measures for handling turbulence, such as sufficient ramp spacing, and...

Developing practicable and efficient real-time signal control strategies for urban road networks is a major challenge with significant scientific and practical relevance. For the sake of practical feasibility, many urban traffic control strategies are based on simplified models. In this way, a trade-off can be made between controller accuracy,...

In big cities, the proportion of slow-mode (such as pedestrian) flows in total trip demand is steadily growing every year. Along with this trend, many concerns arise about accessibility and safety. The monitoring and the management of pedestrians serve as a potential solution to maintain the resilience of the transport network. Monitoring and...

Because of ever-increasing economic globalization, it is necessary to simulate vessel behavior for investigating safety and capacity in ports and inland waterways. A new maritime traffic model was developed; it comprises two parts: the route choice model and the operational model. This paper presents the operational model, which describes vessel...
